I’m excited to introduce our August issue. This month, in addition to celebrating Indian Independence Day on August 15, we’re publishing a strong lineup of profiles, features and columns, including several on health and healthcare. We’ll explore issues of accessibility and affordability for patients, diversity in the field, and conditions affecting members of the Indian-American community.
Next week, we profile Dr. Kavitha Chinnaiyan, who brings her patients Eastern spiritual knowledge in conjunction with her Western medical education. “I don’t find them at all to be separate, but quite unified and complementary,” she says. She’s also fighting to support women in cardiology, a male-dominated specialty: “The kindness of a couple of people at the correct time helped me to progress in cardiology, but that is not generally prevalent.”
With questions or feedback, please be in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’re also always considering ideas and submissions for reported pieces, cultural criticism and well-researched commentary relevant to metro-Detroit’s Indian-American community.
